Submit and issue or ideaλ︎

Raise an issue via the GitHub repository when

  • a page contains examples or explaintions that are not clear, suggesting an alternative where relevant.
  • a topic is not covered or further examples are required

For small issues or if a discussion is required, post a message on 🌐 #practicalli channel of the Clojurians Slack community.

Considering a Pull request?λ︎

Pull Request Commits must be cryptographically signed

All commits contributed to Practicalli must be signed via a legitimate SSH or GPG key to avoid the risk of commit spoofing.

Configure commit signing with SSH key - Practicalli Engineering

All pull requests must include an entry in or will not be merged. A changelog entry allows the community to follow the changes to the book.

Each pull request will have a number of CI workflows run against the contribution, checking the format of the content and if a changelog entry has been provided.

Please keep pull requests small and focused, as they are much quicker to review and easier to accept. Ideally PR's should be for a specific page or at most a section.

A PR with a list of changes across different sections will be closed without merging as these take considerable time to review.

Issues such as grammar improvements are typically a sign of a rushed section that requires a rewrite, so a pull request to fix a typeographic error will probably not be merged. Raise an issue, or post a thread in the 🌐 Clojurians Slack #practicall channel
